The Eight Dynasty (Dynasty VIII)

The Eight Dynasty saw the breakdown of the central authority of pharaoh, and the rise of local governors (nomarchs.) Eventually the nomarchs of Herakleopolis became as powerful as the pharaohs and finally ousted them from power, founding the Ninth Dynasty. Almost nothing but the names of the pharaohs are known.
